Published September 2, 2011


Chale Nafus was a founding member of the Austin Film Society and now serves as the group’s Director of Programming. He taught film studies for 26 years at Austin Community College, where he also served as Chair of the Arts and Humanities Division and head of the Radio-Television-Film Department. Chale also taught at the Universidad de Puerto Rico (Mayaguez) and in the City University of New York system. He has written extensively on film and film history.
We talk about global cinema, about indy film and the thriving Austin film scene, about the AFS’ Essential Cinema series (Hong Kong New Wave) and about the AFS’ September documentary presentation, activist filmmaker Pamela Yates’ Granito: How to Nail a Dictator. We also discuss Chales’s book, The Rebel That Got Away: Trying and Failing to Make Rebel Without a Cause in the 1940s. And lots more.
